Moved in with one another and what a nightmare it has become

Boyfriend and I were together about 16 months before I moved in with him and his son. We all get on great for the most part but some of his habits are literally driving me insane. There is just shit everywhere, clothes, books, plates, I even found a fork shoved down the back of the settee last night. When I come in from work my Ipad is just chucked on the floor (and now has a crack on it), my laptop has been broken (he has replaced it but that's not the point, hugely inconvenient whilst I was without a laptop) he insists on the whole house being in pitch black darkness so i have to use my phone as a torch when walking around at night to ensure I don't fall over anything. He does really stupid stuff like yesterday I came home from work and he'd put every item of clothing I would normally wear on an evening in the wash so it was all wet through.
I just feel like the whole thing has been a huge mistake but don't feel it serious enough to finish with him over iyswim but it's driving me nuts.

Wise and emathetic posters, tall?

Like the one I've got on my wall which says 'Shit Happens' down the back of sofas? hmm

I'm starting to to think these threads are started by MNHQ for their own entertainment. They do seem to bring out the comedy side of otherwise wise and empathetic posters...

Is there a toilet down the back of the sofa? And is that a water butt thinly disguised as a cushion? hmm

What happens where the toilet is situated in the Sahara a particularly arid clime, tired?

tiredofwaitingforitalltochange Thu 07-Feb-13 23:25:44

only flushing the toilet occasionally with rain water

Next time there's a thread listing red flags can someone remember to add this please.

Does your local takeaway send steamy hot flannels with their meals, Shipwrecked?

I prefer the free Buds mine whack in with my orders they know me so well smile

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 07-Feb-13 21:20:41

And a steamy hot flannel

izzyizin Thu 07-Feb-13 21:13:03

2 poppadums broken

Large glob of lime pickle

A foil container of rancid raita

Not if it was a takeaway from a restaurant of the same name which may account for the fork, AU.

The Taj Mahal would probably be a bit uncomfortable to sit on.

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 07-Feb-13 20:53:05

A middle finger?

The Taj Mahal?

izzyizin Thu 07-Feb-13 20:30:51

Ooh, is it one of those guess what's on the tray under the cloth games but with a sofa substituting for the tray?

A rampant rabbit?

His tarzan outfit down the back of the sofa?

My virginity

My husband's vas deferens

A small child.

An empty box.

Some hairy gloves.

The annual subscription to Morris Dancers Monthly that he has enthusiastically purchased for you in the hope you will take it up as a new hobby.

A entire uneaten cake in packaging, with just enough mould growing on it that it's not really edible anymore.

Umm...

AnyFucker Thu 07-Feb-13 20:16:51

nah, ship....consider every episode exactly the same as the one before ....

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 07-Feb-13 20:15:56

Ok, clearly I have missed some episodes in the saga grin

You'd've thought the OP would want to come back and tell us more about how she found the fork scrabbling around in the dark with her phone. Tbh, there are far worse things you could find down the back of the sofa. (A prize* for the best suggestion)

*not really.

Surely you must have known how he lived before you moved in?

I couldn't live like that. I don't see why you can't just move out, but keep on seeing him if you want to.

Is he a vampire?

expatinscotland Thu 07-Feb-13 20:09:58

Um, move out?

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 20:06:35

It's a never-ending saga Shipwrecked.

I'm assuming that one day the kids will leave home and it will stop grin

ShipwreckedAndComatose Thu 07-Feb-13 20:04:17

Boxy...isn't that going back a bit?? Seem to vaguely remember that one

Maryz Thu 07-Feb-13 20:02:57

Oh dear.

It sounds a bit like our house.
